What You Need To Know

Indulge in the timeless allure of the Gondola Rides at The Venetian in Las Vegas – a must-see experience that adds a touch of romantic charm to your Sin City adventure.

Glide beneath picturesque bridges, beside quaint cafes, and under balconies, all while coasting down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. As you embark on either an indoor and outdoor ride, you’ll be serenaded by a singing gondolier, surrendering to the enchanting live melodies that echo through your surroundings.

For an intimate and picturesque experience, consider opting for the outdoor ride, especially during cooler weather. The open skies provide more privacy, and the natural lighting enhances the beauty of the moment for stunning photos. If you choose to embark on this adventure during the summer, a sunset ride offers a delightful escape from the sun’s intensity.

Keep in mind that Las Vegas winters can get chilly, so bundle up warmly if you plan to enjoy the outdoor experience.

Looking to experience something extra unique that not too many get to witness? Try to catch the Gondolier March, where a team of gondoliers sing in unison as they march along the indoor canal. Catch this special tradition twice a day at 9:45 a.m. and 4:20 p.m. at the gondola turn-around in the Grand Canal Shoppes.

Each gondola can seat four, so it doesn’t have to be just a romantic outing for couples, but also a fun way to be transported to Italy with your family/friends!

Prices vary, with Monday to Thursday rates at $34.00 per person, Friday to Sunday at $39.00 per person, and special rates starting at $39.00 per person.

  • Tickets start at $34 USD
  • 15 to 20-minute ride with serenading
  • Last Gondola leaves the dock 15 minutes prior to closing. The Outdoor Ride operates on a seasonal and weather-permitting basis.
  • You can opt for an indoor or outdoor ride. Get the indoor ride if it’s swelteringly hot during your visit. If want a more private and relaxing experience, get the outdoor ride.
  • To purchase tickets, look for the Emporio di Gondola storefront just past St Mark’s Square along the canal or the outdoor ticket booth.
  • Buy tickets early and plan ahead! The rides get booked up quickly. If you have to wait around, there are plenty of shops and restaurants to go to.
  • For the best light and photos on the outdoor ride, we recommend booking close to sunset.
  • They take a photo of you when you board the gondola that you can purchase. You can also bring your own camera aboard.
